One of my New Years
resolutions plans is to show more of myself , a big step for me as I don’t like talking about my past. While I didn’t have a terrible childhood it wasn’t full of much love, don’t get me wrong I was warm, I was fed I didn’t go without. But what I did go without was love or expressions of love. Now I’m not putting down these words for folks to say ‘oh you poor thing’ I’m writing them down for me to finally after 58 years to put it aside and to get on and enjoy life.
My Mother died when I was 12 and my Father when I was 15. I had been a weekly boarder at school and I went to live with my Sister and her family, looking back it must have been difficult for her to take on a teenager when she had young children. One of my worse moments was always Christmas I never knew where I would spend it especially when I was a 20 year old home from college for the holidays. Luckily my boyfriend’s Mother would invite me to stay with them , it was wonderful.
So now I cannot bear the thought of anyone being on their own at this time of the year. our house this year will have 2 guests, my husband’s cousin who lost her Mother back in June and is now on her own and a friend of my children’s who isn’t able to get home for Christmas.
My Friday Find is joy and happiness that we can all be together as a family to celebrate. As this will be my last post before Christmas I wish all of you all the best for Christmas may you all be together with your loved ones and especially all those who are ill and have to be away from the comfort of familiar surroundings.
Thanks to Kim for her lovely brushes and texture.
